I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Here in Oregon, we’re best-known for two things: wine and seafood. Of course, there are outliers and iconoclasts shaking up the Beaver State’s culinary scene, but generally, we’re all about fresh fish, farm-to-table fare, and fragrant, full-bodied vino. So when we tell you there’s a little Italian restaurant in Portland that’s become a bonafide Beaver State legend, you’d better believe it’s a place worth seeking out. Gabbiano’s is a rustic, old-school Italian restaurant in north Portland that’s known for one single menu item: the Mozzarella Shots. Iconic and wholly unique, you absolutely must venture to Gabbiano’s to try this legendary, only-in-Oregon creation.
